and the russian minister decided to meet with the envoy to syria. across barbra himybill: russia s discussion in moscow. earlier in a week there was a report it was pulling support away from damascus. has that bent case? and why the relationship with russia so critical. >> reporter: it's one of the countries syria will listen to. russia could have sway over syrian president assad. >> the best issue we have is russia. russia stood up and told him to stop the chemical weapons issue and he backed off. but now he's back at it again. >> reporter: if assad does leave the immediate problem for the international community is who will take over in syria. then another key issue is how and who will secure the chemical weapons? bill: we are awaiting word from the pentagon and when that happens we'll bring that to you. martha: sarin gas is one of the world's most dangerous chemical weapons. experts say it has 500 times as toxic quality as cyanide does. 100 milligrams, which is one drop, can kill the average person in minutes if he or she is not given an immediate antedote. bill: syria depend on money from
away from this is russia. russia stood up and told him to stop the chemical weapon issue, and he backed off. now that he's at it again, i think russia needs to stand up and hopefully they will. it's also good to hear that some of the arab countries are trying to find a way to get him out. you know, we don't know whether or not he's lost his mind, that he's scared, that we just don't know what's going to happen, but this could be a leverage for him to find a way to get out and to find a way to take his family somewhere in the world. >> greta: there's always the problem even if he goes, if he gets aasylu siel some place, whs going to take over and secure the chemical weapons. that's always been israel's fear. if assad fallless, who takesnehe chemnd biological weapons. syria was a more sophisticated country than libya, but we know what happened in libya. i've had conversations with numerous americans from have con their families that are there. we're worried about the al-qaeda extreme terror situation who have come there to work with the opposition. we have information now that there's a w
we do? >> one faint hope we have, but it's still hope, is russia will intervene with president assad and try to convince him this is committing suicide with horrific consequences. it's one of the most -- this sarin gas, one of the most lethal gas that's ever been invented. and the second thing is to convince bashar assad, that i'm not sure he's convinced of, that the consequences of these weapons would have an immediate and devastating response. and reason why i say i'm not sure he believes us, he's watched us leave arack in disarray, he's watched al-qaeda return to arack, he's seen our consulate attacked and no one has paid a price for it for the deaths of four americans. he's watched al-qaeda return and take over mali, he's seen us announcement after announcement of withdrawal from afghanistan and a perception throughout the middle that the united states is withdrawing and weak and i hope he doesn't believe that because i do believe the president when he said he will act. but talking about red lines he's giving a green light to assad to do anything short of that. >> here's the prob
russia and others to notice he is taking this potentially suicidal step in the hopes of one last diplomatic solution that so far he has been against. but he may now sees a his only hope. so maybe if russia is persuaded that assad is on the doorstep of defeat or suicide for that matter, effective suicide, that russia will finally help us do a deal to get a power sharing arrangement. >> so a power sharing arrangement or perhaps trying to get some sort of asylum deal. either way, if it's the threat of chemical weapons that he is using, it seems less about negotiation and more about blackmail, shep. >> shepard: jonathan hunt, thanks very much. >> a fox urgent and news developing right now. the white house has just informed us president obama called egypt's president today to express what the white house called deep concern over the deadly protests in cairo overnight. the white house says president obama praised the egyptian president mohammed morsi for offering to meet with his opponents this weekend but said that dialogue should come without any preconditions. one opposition group i

and severe spents on people who abuse human rights in russia and vladimir is not going to be happy will this legislation. >> i noticed back in july you warned everybody that this would happen. you called our foreign policy feckless. will the world had blood on its hands, everybody, if he unleashes the chemical weapons and we see tens of thousands of people dead or is this something we just can't police the world and we are going to have to stand by and watch this. >> i think we would be directly responsible. all of those who argued against intervention warned us that if we intervene, these terrible things would happen, well, we didn't intervene, and all these terrible things, the consequences have been huge. as we sat by and watched these 40,000 people massacred. so it was very clear that there's moral died da and jihaddists in syria. they are, by the way, pretty good fighters. some of the arms, because we didn't supply it, of that come from saudi arabia have gone to not we won't want. because we didn't establish a safe zone and be organized and have a benghazi, they have been disj
